  • for school or work whatever it’s worth downloading Nov 3, 2020

    By What is Life!
    I use it for school I have an outlook account that I sign into and without logging into my computer I can take outlook wherever and whenever. Their are downfalls using this app and one of them is........that if you have a signature that you put in some emails and others you don’t there is no way to put a signature in your email in Outlook app which I don’t mind but then again I thought all your capabilities that you have online or app on computer you would have in the app for your phone. Another downfall I think is that you can’t say a email is “low important or high importance” I again for me that’s not super important but it would be nice to have on the app for your phone. There are plenty other things you can’t do on the app for your mobile device but you can do on the desktop app for your computer or laptop or pc. Other than, I like using the app and reading emails that come in without running to my computer to reply or even just read a single message I can be away from my computer and use my phone while I’m on the go doing other things that are little more important than sitting at home waiting for a email to come in thinking that’s the only way I can respond and receive messages from Outlook.

    Update 1/21 This app is broken on Android 10. I am on a OnePlus 7t and this app just doesn't work. The last message I received from this app is December. I just got an email about a job and had to run out the door. So I'm looking at my phone there is no email. There hasn't been ema received in the app since New year's Eve!!!! How hard is it for email app to actually pull in email. So if I'm out in the field away from our computers I would have missed so many emails this is ridiculous.

    I’d give it an 4.5 if I could, but it’s not a four. I’d like it if it was easier to figure out at first how to access other folders such as trash and drafts—or maybe I’m just slow. I like how you can change what the slide function has—I have it set to delete which is super helpful and I wish the apple mail app had. I use both apps with Microsoft OutLook for my school email. I also like the computer version as well. Both versions of the app can (and do) remind me of events I have in my Microsoft calendar (I forget their name, if it has one). This is really helpful as my high school is using teams during the whole pandemic-so I get reminded before school starts, towards the end of classes I dislike, and before lunch ends that I have class which is really helpful. I’ll also mention that you can turn this off—for one or all events—and change the amount of time beforehand that it reminds you at (15 or 5 minutes beforehand for example). I still will use google as my main email because I already am—it isn’t better enough in the ways it is to change. I don’t think it is worse per say that google/apple email apps/websites. Hope this helps!

    This is the worst app that I have on my phone. Typically I don’t keep apps that I absolutely hate, but since I have no alternative to using this horrible thing, I haven’t removed it. This pathetic thing has caused problems for me professionally. It takes less time for me to boot up the computer and check my calendar and then it does for me to even make my calendar showing this out. Hoping out an email literally takes as long as it would to write a letter and put it in the mail. Smoke signals will be better than this app. I can’t even open my calendar to understand what kind of meetings I have for the day because this app loads every single calendar I have shared to me and freezes every time I click a button. This is horrible. Don’t know why Microsoft insists upon upgrading things to be absolutely terrible. Even more I can’t understand why the entire professional world forces everyone to use Outlook. Gross. Even worse, it’s been out for a year already and you’ve done nothing to fix it, it’s gotten worse if anything. I’d be fired if I was this bad at my job.

    Hello, I love the outlook app and I need to use it on a day to day basis. Some of the items like calendar events and sending notifications is great in parts but lack in editing. First off. Why is there no copy and paste in Outlook. I had a whole email typed up and I needed to input a link. So what would I have to do? Copy and paste it in. Nope. I have to go to safari and click share and then outlook so I can send a link in outlook. Well then when I get in outlook I have to retype my message or just paste in the other one right. Nope. Paste does not work from previous to new message. So I have to manually copy something by hand. Link or original message. Come on Microsoft. Make copy and paste work the. You get a solid 4. Add some polish and sub folder notifications and some editing tools you will have a 5 Star app again. Please fix these little flaws. You have office and should be able to make a solid app. Now let’s make it happen. Thanks.

    Terrible. Slow app, drains battery. Gives email notifications but does not show any new emails until either several minutes after notification or until you've first looked at the calendar. Often saves a draft rather then send your email. Or sometimes both. Calendar is very confusing. Difficult to schedule new meetings. This app need UX improvements. Gmail app is much much better but can unfortunately no longer authenticate with Office 365.

    It seems that Outlook routinely "forgets" your mail accounts, even when using Microsoft's own Exchange-based accounts (Outlook, Hotmail). Why is this? Why does Outlook have to refresh all of your mail locally almost every time you open it? There will even be a numerical badge indicating unread messages, but when you open Outlook, you will be notified that Outlook has "found" accounts on your system (accounts that you have, of course, already added to Outlook) and you will be prompted to add these accounts again. The standard Apple iOS Mail app actually seems to manage Microsoft's own mail accounts better than Microsoft's email app. How can this be? Is Apple doing sometime here to hobble non-Apple email apps (as they do with non-Apple mobile browsers) or has Microsoft not been able to figure out how to develop native iOS applications? I'm inclined to think it's the latter, because other non-Apple email apps do seem to be able to retain email account continuity. It's a shortcoming only for the Outlook email client. I keep trying to use Outlook as a mobile email client for my Microsoft email accounts and I always end up uninstalling it and reverting to the Apple app or some other third-part email app. It's a shame, really. Google's Mail app works pretty well for Gmail. Microsoft's Outlook app doesn't work well for Microsoft email. What's going on here?

    Useless app! Nobody uses Outlook anyway, and in order to sign in you need to set up Authenticator -- which I tried to do, but I am prompted to enter a Hotmail code, which I can't get because Authenticator isn't set up... And around and around we go! What do they think this is, a bank? I would give it ZERO stars if I could!

    the app shuts down every time you open it, very frustrating! Well, a year later and still having problems, the preview hides my emails evidently on the server because they're not on my phone anywhere and I can't get to them or find them! Think its time to find something else for my mail, I have used them since I signed up when it was hotmail but I must move on.

    It used to work just fine, but very occasionally, the app decides to not work anymore. For example, since a few days the app doesn't update my account anymore. Figuring it was probably something with the update, I logged out. Now I cannot get into my mail anymore because the password screen doesn't pop up anymore. In short: fun when it works, but it doesn't occasionally EDIT: after a week or two it worked again. I've had some fun with it, but since yesterday the all broke down again...

  1. Do more with less! Outlook for mobile devices gives you full access to Microsoft's office tools on the go
  2. Compatible with Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, Outlook.com (including Hotmail and MSN), Gmail, Yahoo Mail, and iCloud
  3. Bring all the mobile apps you love under the Outlook umbrella: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Evernote, Trello, Slack, and more

    .:edit 1/2/2021:. I'm so sorry. I'm dumb. I had no idea you can swipe on the app to see other folders. I forgot that was a thing. My apologies!! I changed the rating!! Annoys me that I can't check my spam folder. Some of my favorite websites are sent their. So I periodically would check on my laptop. I can't with the app. I don't like that.

    Latest versions stable on my samsung. What I really hate is the amount of storage space, increasing permanently and significantly with every update. 672 Mb at the moment. That's just OMG! Just overhaul the app. Switch to extensions that can be added. If data storage continues increasing as in the past, I will just uninstall, rather than buying a new mobile after a year. That counts for a handful of other apps as well, just by the way.

    In the "about this app"; could you trim it down a bit. It is a bit repetitive; though it has useful info. I previously used it on a Win phone. Not 100% sure about how to get the best out of it, still learning. The predictive text on Android is better than it was on Win 10 phones. I'd like a 7 day week view; and the option for longer than 1 week advance notice for reminders in the calendar.

    Update: issue below hasn't been fully fixed. Also, when you move emails to the junk folder, they don't get marked as junk so any more emails from the same source will still be received. It works with a huge annoying exception. When I get a notification about an email and load it from the notification bar, it often says "error loading message" and I have to leave the message and then press it again for it to actually load. No idea why this happens but it's enough for me to give it 3 stars.

    Great app...I use it to manage all my mail addresses. I also love the sports function in calendar. I can sync fixtures for all the teams I'm interested in. However, results don't sync to the latest. Still excellent though. I also feel the widgets could use some transparency to keep up with the theme of other widgets on my home screen.

  • User friendliness and efficiency needs improvement Oct 13, 2019

    By ritzoni
    So when you use gmail you can do a search and it will bring up emails specifically from the word you searched. For example, if you search for Apple Pay it will pull up emails from Apple Pay first. If you do the same search in outlook it will give you all emails that include those words as the sender, subject, mention, etc. This means you have to navigate through a list of unimportant emails to get to the one you want if you don’t give up in utter disappointment in the process. If that’s not frustrating enough when you write an email and it goes past a certain line you better hope you can type really well because you won’t be able to see past that line. I would have to stop scroll up and check the sentence, correct it blindly because it toggles back down where it can’t be seen and continue typing. So I started writing in other apps like gmail and forwarding it to outlook or doing a copy paste and forwarding it to my recipient if it was a longer message. That is not how I want to send my emails but outlook hasn’t seemed to be able to figure out how to make it work. Thus I have several apps for emails. Ugh

  • The App is Ok Aug 1, 2019

    By Bethdoodle
    The app has worked great since I got it last year, especially for school. But recently it’s stopped sending me notifications for some emails which has caused me to miss several emails and dead-lines. It’s too late for me at this point so please fix this issue. I don’t know if it’s because I had 2 inboxes from 2 different school emails or what, but this problem has caused me a lot of stress and I’d prefer it not happen in the future. Edit: The issue that I believed was originally occurring is not the only one. It appears the reason I am not getting notifications for emails is because these emails aren’t appearing in my inbox until days later. For example, several emails I received on the 30th of July did not appear in my inbox until today. I did not get any notifications for any emails on that 30th. This is really frustrating because I’ve received emails from university faculty who have been sending and requesting information and it is really creating a huge hassle for me and causing more stress than is needed. Maybe this is something I need to talk to my school about? If it is please let me know.

    When you start a new email, it starts in the body of the message and not at the "to" field in order to enter a recipient first. Another issue I don't like is it automatically inserts a picture in the body instead of being an attached file. This makes additional steps for the recipient to jump through if they need to save the picture to computer. I use Outlook on my computer and it starts in the TO field and allows easy attachments of all file types. I hope this will be changed for the phone/tablet devices to make it more uniform to the full version of Outlook.

  • It kind of blows compared to the capability of using the site, or other email handlers. Aug 14, 2020

    By Netkid_100
    I’ve used Outlook since it was Hotmail originally. This app has the least of what you need, and tries too hard to be new with a weird (Focus) switch for your inbox. Meaning I miss all types of email that it doesn’t think I’m focused on. Plus, it has spam and phishing emails filtered into the Focus section. My main issue is that I can’t find any rule setting, or block option for repeated spam mail. I blocked everyday in my Apple email app, and didn’t see as many spam messages hit my inbox until I started using this app to check the addressee and mark the message junk. Since there’s no menu, submenu, or tap/hold option to do so either. I don’t know who made this app, but it’s missing most of what makes Outlook efficient, and Outlook is getting terrible at filtering out spam/phishing/general junk emails in the last year. Might need to make the full jump to Gmail, even as a Microsoft supporter.

  • Extremely basic, can’t organize mail Mar 3, 2020

    By ggianop
    This is a terrible implementation of outlook. It’s only good for basic reading & writing of simple emails. I can’t manage folders other than the ability to create new folders at the top level of the folder hierarchy. I can’t create a hierarchy of folders. God forbid you used Outlook for windows to create a folder hierarchy in your mailbox; it can’t be edited, new folders can’t be created within this hierarchy, and there is NO WAY to delete any folders in this app. (The native Apple Mail app is more functional with this regard than MS’ own app.) The only other reason I’d use this app over Apple Mail client is to retain the ability to create other types of outlook / exchange documents in folders. But, alas, the authors have removed this feature too. No more notes, postings, or other document types. So now I have to email things to myself and move them into folders when I want to use exchange to organize my online documents & notes; and that means sending notes through email which is often a security risk I was never exposed to before. But, then again, since I can’t do folder Mgmt, I’m better off using Apple Mail so I can at least manage where and how I store my info with my folder hierarchy.

  • The only thing worse than this app is their customer service Jan 4, 2019

    By Coppercosmo
    I’m trying to use this app to access my work email from home. The app has continually deleted my entire inbox for no consistent reason I can figure out. I will open a new email and it will delete the email while I’m reading it and then my entire inbox. My inbox on my work computer will still be intact, but any email I attempted to open in the app will be missing. When I contacted customer service through the app they told me it simply wasn’t possible that the app was deleting emails and never responded again. When I attempted to email customer service on my work computer it said their customer service email address is undeliverable. I missed a very important email from my boss this morning while out sick, and even drove into work to try and see if I could access the email there to find nothing. I very well might loose my job over this and their customer service frankly does not care. If you can avoid using Microsoft (which I know is impossible) do all you can to stay away from them. They are a heartless company, and their substandard products will not only make your life hell, their customer service department seems to get joy out of your pain. If I could give them zero stars I would!
